Re: Nauvis Post Collapse (16GB ram minimum required)

Just FYI, I'm getting 60 fps on only 8 GB RAM (+ 4 GB VRAM on the graphics card).
Basically the only slow thing is loading and saving (which is odd, since I'm running it off an SSD hard drive).

Auto-activate dependency mods

If a mod has dependencies, I would like them to automatically be activated when I activate the mod itself. For example, the Sea Block Pack mod has about 20 dependencies, which means I then spend time find each dependency and activating it. If the dependencies themselves also have dependencies, it is...

Re: Friday Facts #272 - Mod GUI

I'd like there to be a way to download or update all dependencies of a mod with one click. Or, even better, for it to happen automatically when you download or update the mod itself. It would also be nice if the game could do mod changes without reloading at all; or, at minimum, to be able to make a...

Re: Friday Facts #254 - No research queue for you

I think that the arguments for removing the queue are entirely from the point of view of someone learning the game for the first time. These are entirely valid arguments from that point of view, but Factorio is not a game that you play only once and then put away. Now that we have space science, a p...

Re: 15.1 high res sprites do not display

Just to make sure, you are certain that you do not have any dedicated graphics card in your system? Not that I can find: Device Manager -> Display Adapters only displays the Intel HD Graphics 4600 option I think the problem is that this graphics card has a "dedicated vram" of only 128mb. However, i...

Re: 15.1 high res sprites do not display

Hi, thanks for the log. It says the game runs on Intel HD Graphics 4600. Do you have laptop with switchable graphics? If you do, you should open nVidia or AMD control center and set it to force using dedicated graphics card for Factorio. If you don't have nVidia/AMD graphics card Intel HD Graphics ...

Re: 15.1 high res sprites do not display

I did read the FAQ. Please don't condescend. The wiki says that for Windows the log files should be in one of the following two locations: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Factorio C:\Program Files\Factorio On my PC the 2nd one doesn't exist, and there's no log file in the first one.

15.1 high res sprites do not display

Using 15.1 on Steam with Windows 10. if I choose "high sprite resolution", then certain entities do not appear: transport belts, steam engines, electric pump, burner miner, stone furnace do not show up. What it looks like on normal resolution: 20170425231621_1.jpg Same build on high resolution: 2017...

Re: Friday facts #157 - We are able to eat paper, but we don't do it

Also what's wrong with the title? It's just weird. The title is an analogy. Humans can physically digest paper, but it's pointless, since we get no nutrition from it. Likewise, the devs are able to spend lots of time optimizing for more and more players, but it's superfluous for what is fundamental...

Re: [13.17] "Can't play replay. Replay date were not found."

You probably just didn't check the "enable replay" when starting your map. The save file you provided doesn't have a replay contained in it (as it does when you don't check that checkbox). That makes sense. Thanks for checking! It seems odd that you have the option to "save replay" at the end if th...

[13.17] "Can't play replay. Replay date were not found."

I'm not certain why I'm getting this message. I just finished a game. (11h 57min, WOO) On the finishing screen is the button to "save replay". It doesn't seem to matter if I save the replay under the same name or a different name. If I go back to the menu and select "replay game", and then select th...
